Good alternative

The tour was already fully booked, so they gave us an alternative. But Maybe it is there standard business model? Tho We where thankful that we still had the oppurtunity to go on this tour. It was very impressive and makes you quiet when you think about the horrors in this camp.

Very informative tour guides!

Our guides were impressive for both the walking tour of Old Town Krakow and the Aushwitz tour. You could feel the passion they both have for sharing their knowledge with the tour group. The tour was more incredible than I expected it would be. It’s a must visit and this company will not dispappoint! My only minor complaint was with the driver from Krakow to Auschwitz. He was not welcoming at nothing personal abour himand all he wanted to do was talk on the phone and text while he was driving.
